EIU Department of Sociology, Anthropology, and Criminology




The Bachelor of Arts in Criminology and Criminal Justice requires 49 hours (16 courses) of coursework. Ten core courses are required (e.g., Criminal Investigation, Criminological Theory, Philosophy of Law) and students select an additional six Criminology and Criminal Justice electives that suit their individual and professional interests. Given the interdisciplinary design of this degree program students can easily complete one, or more, academic minors and can, through careful planning with an academic advisor, double major in a related discipline.



While requiring 21 hours for the Criminology minor, the program also offers students a total of 60 hours of coursework, thus enhancing student selection and focus. Of the 21 hours for the minor, nine are required, including Philosophy of Law, Civil Liberties in America, and Introduction of Criminology. Students, in consultation with their advisers and in reflection of their professional interests, are then free to select 12 elective hours from remaining program offerings.
